All Charles Sturt University researchers should have a CRO researcher profile. If you cannot find your profile in CRO and/or require assistance to update it, please contact your Faculty librarians.
Use your CSU username and password to access CRO. For access requests or system issues, please contact the CRO administrators.
Getting to your CRO profile login
CRO uses the Pure Research Information Management System (Elsevier).
To get to the Pure login, scroll to the end of the page as shown below. Use your Charles Sturt University login details to log into Pure.
Use your Charles Sturt University login to go to your Profile page, your Research overview and your Supervision Information.
Your Research overview shows your statistics for research outputs, Prizes and awards, Activities and Press or Media.
You can also find citations and downloads information for your works. This information is only visible to you.
A researcher's h-index in CRO is drawn from the Scopus Journal Database h-index. This blog post explains more about how the h-index is calculated for authors. The h-indexes in Scopus and CRO will match perfectly if all the publications listed in Scopus are also listed in CRO. If they don't match you can import them into CRO. If they do match and the h-indexes are different please contact your Faculty Librarians.
Please note: the h-index in Google Scholar bears no relationship to the h-index in CRO because they use different sources to create the index.
Your CRO Researcher profile is a powerful promotional vehicle for your research. The following tips will assist you to maximise your Researcher profile:
Some research outputs will have PlumX information available. This information is mostly derived from data obtained from the Citation databases such as Scopus or Web of Science, and a number of Social Media applications. The downloads information comes from accepted author manuscripts that have been added to CRO, when these are downloaded by others.
There are a few things you can do to increase the visibility of your research, and make it available to PlumX.
PlumX monitors Amazon, Bitly, Crossref, Dryad, dSpace, Facebook, Figshare, Github, Google+, Mendeley, PLOS, PubMed, Reddit, SlideShare, Twitter, USPTO, Wikipedia, WorldCat and YouTube.
In addition to PlumX metrics, CRO or Pure, also provides download statistics for any Open Access pre-publication manuscripts in CRO.
There are a number of options available for you to download and save a list of your research outputs, or to create your CV.
You can download as PDF, HTML, RIS (For EndNote), Word or BibTeX.
